If you grow the leader, the business grows!
Congratulations! You’ve done it! You’re the boss! You have created a business doing what you love and being of service to the world. You’ve developed some amazing offerings and helped some wonderful clients.
You are still working your life away like a worker bee instead of a Queen bee. It seems like if one area of your life is going well, the others suffer. You’re wishing you had more time, more money and less stress and more fun. You started this business to do what you love and have time and financial freedom, but you’ve created yourself another ‘job’ that you slave away at more than you ever did in corporate. This is because you’re not stepping up into your role as a true leader.
Leadership is all about influence.
Good leaders know how to set the vision, be an example, delegate, empower, be of service, practice accountability and connect with people. The value of leading well is that when you’re developing yourself as a leader, the other areas of your life improve. If you’re feeling like you could use some improvements in these areas…
I CAN HELP!
I love helping women create the life and business they don’t need a vacation from. I believe that everything rises and falls on leadership. The success of your life and business will only be as good as your leadership abilities – how well you lead yourself and how well you lead others.
I have over 10 years of experience coaching, speaking and training in leadership development, communication and conflict transformation. I am also a proud member of the John Maxwell Team, trained by the #1 leadership guru in the world himself! You can also check out my formal education in my professional bio below. These days I specialize in bringing a holistic approach to leadership for women in business.
I’m nerdy girl from Arkansas.
In 2013 I ‘retired’ from corporate America and academia to pursue my dreams and moved to a cozy condo on the beach in Puerto Rico. I am able to coach clients from all over the world helping them lead amazing lives, while working from wherever, doing the work that I love and feel called to do, and I have a lot of fun too. I believe success is unique to each individual, so for me right now it includes a lot of luxurious travel and time to explore while I work my business adding value to people, making a fantastic income, being present in my relationships and having a ton of fun!
What does success look like to you?
I will help you assess every area of your life and focus on where you desire to be in each one and develop a customized plan to help you get there. It’s all about getting clear and intentional about who you want to be. Time waits for no one. Stop saying I’ll be happy when, I’ll do that then, I’ll be ready someday, wouldn’t it be nice to… And switch to I am, I can, I will, I have mentality. Believe it is possible for you NOW!
Your dream life is ready if you’re willing to lead it!
What we think and believe creates our reality. Henry Ford said, whether you think you can, or think you can, you’re right! If you’re ready to begin your growth journey as a leader, head on over to my work with me page to explore ways we can partner together to take you to your next level! You can also set up a discovery session with me to talk about your needs.
